    With so many people out there promoting ‘clean eating’ its nice to read an article like this where its all put into the right perspective. I also believe people need carbs especially kids who still need to grow. I love bad carbs but over the last year I’ve tried eating them less and like you write, it has definitely made a big difference in my energy levels. Thanks

    Thanks, Jeff,
    Having worked in the health and fitness industry for 15yrs myself, it’s so good to see an article that is on point with the direction the industry is moving in.
    It gets frustrating when you’re constantly reading articles about cutting carbs and fat from your diet.
    As you know, our bodies need all the macro-nutrients in order for us to function.
    Thanks for posting!

    It’s great to be back on your website. I mean, the amount of valuable information here is just astounding. I never knew there was so much to learn about carbs and how they affect our bodies.

    I think I need to start eating brown rice from now on due to its weight loss benefits. Rice is a big part of my daily diet and I think its what preventing me from reaching my weight loss goals.

    Awesome article as always!

      Thank You Farhan,

      I am happy you had the time to visit my website and read the article on carbs, I used to eat white rice all the time and was gaining weight. If you are a big rice eater the brown rice is a better choice, quinoa is even a better choice if you like pasta its high in protein and low in carbs.
